I love the feta and capers in this cheese ball. My mom made it last year for a dinner party she had and it was one of the first things to go. I had to get the recipe from her...she handed me a Southern Living magazine, LOL! So here it is for all of you to enjoy too! I like to serve it with toasted pita wedges. Cook time is chill time.

This is a great recipe! Everyone loved this cheese ball at our 4th of July party, much more exciting than the ususal cheddar version! I served it with toasted wheat pitas and garlic & herb wheat crackers.
